Valley Lodge is very well maintained BUT the following was lacking:Geyser on time switch--we went to concert and upon arrival back (cold and wet) looking forward to a hot shower -found the water to be ice cold and also no plug for basin??Bed also needs a new mattress.

I was disappointed in Valley Lodge. I was expecting 5 star and thought of it more like 3 star. The shower did not work properly in unit 3 and the bath plug leaked so we could not have a good bath or shower. We were also overcharged and on departure were charged a different rate to what was quoted and agreed upon.I would not return to Valley lodge.

Excellent reception and service by staff who responded positively and pro-actively to special requests. Room well appointed and comfortable.Staircases to bedrooms are very steep and not suitable for handicapped or slightly infirm or elderly guest.

One night wasn't sufficient to properly assess your facility particularly as I had to leave at 7.30 - apparently before breakfast was served. Please review your directions. Perhaps it was just me but I found them very confusing.
